Clean Plants for your Home
The indoor quality of air can be just as affected by our daily actions as the quality outside the house. While we may not be able to control the quality of air outside our house in short period of time, we can do that for our homes and ensure clean breathing air within the house. Some plants have natural air cleaning qualities and can be planted around the house for cleaner and more breathable air.
